I am not a mote in a mass, as one might think of members of a “class.” Are you? I think, act, and make for myself. I am not owned by this or that class. I am not consigned to a percentile which defines my happiness or dictates my worth. I am free to master my passions, and focus their force into works, and a life that for me is my opus.
Sin is not simply the product of man’s evil nature. It is the stumbling block, the cruel and dispassionate tuition of error, remorse, estrangement from God and other mortals, the burning fire which refines man, and teaches his mind to adapt, change course, invent another way, improve his lot, and employ his godly nature in the process of achievement.
The Left speaks of “shared sacrifice,” which, to them means, that those who earn give of their property to support those who, for whatever reason, fail to earn. It is euphemistic for Collectivism, and because one must lose to another, with wealth being moved around but never created, this form of “sacrifice” is a lose, lose proposition.
